Quality Design Education in Italy

Domus Academy has teamed up with Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti to create a Quality Design Education Group providing the complete picture for art, design and fashion education in the world's capital of design and applied arts. With a combined 45 years of experience, the two sister schools complement each other perfectly in representing the full range of Art and Design Education from 3 year undergraduate studies, recognized by the Italian Ministry of Education, to 1 year postgraduate master degrees, validated and awarded by the University of Wales (UK), plus a range of certificate programs that last a semester or a year and short courses on specific themes. The city of Milan is synonymous of cutting edge fashion, interior, industrial and product design. It is the hearth of contemporary Italy. Located in an interesting historical and cultural context (e.g. La Scala theatre and Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper), it also provides an outstanding opportunity to explore the possibilities of tomorrow within the context of an evolving global culture. Milan offers also easy trains and coach access to major Italian cities such as Rome, Florence and Venice. SUMMER COURSES Domus Academy and NABA feature a wide choice of Summer Courses.
